Islamic State Members From the West Seek Help Getting Home
Bad choices coming home to roost.
More after the break.
". . . Islamic State members recruited from the West have increasingly been contacting their governments and asking for help in getting home, according to diplomats and a Syrian network that aids defectors."
What happened to the romance, the adventure?
"Islamic State militants have threatened to execute people who try to escape and paraded the severed heads of would-be defectors as a warning, according to Syrians who have fled. The militants have also planted mines and erected checkpoints around Raqqa that act as further deterrents."
Actually seeing a head on the end of a pole is galvanizing.
They made poor choices, and many will have to pay, some with their lives.
